We extend God's loving hand to those we serve while at the same time encouraging them to seek God's provision in their lives. CCA's mission and ministry is based on the Biblical New Testament teachings of Jesus Christ. We seek to treat every client with respect and dignity in such a way that they may feel valued and validated.
Inspired by strong Christian values, Christian Community Assistance is a multi-denominational church-supported, non-profit organization whose ministry is to provide food, clothing, and other relief to the needy in our community.
Because Christian Community Assistance exists, over 7,000 people each year receive the assistance they need. We promote inter-agency cooperation by assisting other agencies with clients they are unable to help. This greatly extends our outreach to the community and we are able to impact those in need even farther.
Additionally, we are a training agency for TCU and UTA students who are pursuing a degree in social work.
Southwest Aid Alliance dba Christian Community Assistance (CCA) originated in 1989 as a small clothing pantry organized by Gambrell Street Baptist Church to assist students studying at nearby Southwest Baptist Seminary; food was added a short time later. The pantry expanded quickly and soon outgrew its original site. It was then moved to a storefront location on Seminary Drive in Southwest Fort Worth, and began serving, not just seminarians, but also the poor and needy in our target area and referrals from a small number of ecumenical churches. CCA functioned at that time under the United Way umbrella.
CCA moved to our current location near Paschal High School and the TCU Campus in 2002. We are pleased to report that we now own the land and buildings without encumbrances.
CCA was incorporated under the laws of the State of Texas in 1994. We are a federally recognized 501(c)3 non-profit, and all monetary donations are tax exempt. CCA had left United Way by that time, and financial support had been assumed by an expanding circle of multi-denominational churches.
